Format: Audio CD
This wonderful collection of songs is sung by the little known, but angelically beautiful voice of Connie Dover - possibly the finest singer of this kind of material in the world. Connie is a Missouri-based singer who combines a love of ancient Scottish and Irish ballads and other traditional songs, with an interest in her 'cowgirl' roots as an American who has spent time as a trail cook on the cattle ranches of the west listening to the folk sounds of America's past. The musical fruit of these varied tastes, is the diverse range of the songs recorded on this CD. There's Celtic folk, there's cowboy songs, there's even the spiritual 'Ubi Caritas' - a 20th century melody penned to the words of a 9th century Gregorian chant. What is remarkable is how well these pieces all gel together - but then these are great songs, and great songs sound good whatever the context in which they are heard.
Every single one of the tracks on 'The Wishing Well' is worthy of mention, so it's difficult to select favourites. Perhaps Connie's voice is best suited to those gentle Scottish ballads, the pretty 'LADDIE, LIE NEAR ME' and the very beautiful 'WILLIE OF WINSBURY' (I'm glad it's very beautiful because it's also very long!) Another really nice song is 'HUGH THE GRAEME'. However, if Celtic ballads are a forte of Connie's, the two cowboy pieces on this CD, 'WHERE SHALL I GO?' and the lovely 'THE COLORADO TRAIL' are equally good, and splendidly compliment the old world pieces. 'SUMMER BEFORE THE WAR' is another song from a very different era written around a very different theme, and yet again it is first rate material. So is the aforementioned 'UBI CARITAS'.

This album gets more beautiful with every listen. It contains a lot of what Connie Dover does best - textured, moving ballads with a hint of the Irish and sung with Connie's admirably trained, richly textured voice. It also contains some uplifting jigs and an acapella that will bring tears to your eyes.
No Connie Dover fan should be without this gem. And those who are hunting around for another mature, creative, somewhat Celtic artist to try - this is the lady and this is the album.

What more can one say about Connie Dover other than she is simply amazing. When I bought Somebody I listened to it over and over, never tiring of any songs. Then I picked up The Wishing Well and thought I died and went to Heaven. "Ubi Caritas" is my favorite track, with "Hugh the Grameme", "Where Shall I Go" and "Summer Before the War", close seconds. I can't wait to listen to If I Ever Return and her upcoming release The Border of Heaven. This lady has truly been blessed with the voice of an angel.

Until a chance discovery on "Thistle & Shamrock" some years ago, I had never heard of Connie Dover before. Thanks to Fiona Ritchie and her selection of Ms. Dover's 'In Aimsir An Fheir', my socks were promptly knocked off, and I rushed out to buy the CD. The afore-mentioned song, the first on the CD, somehow carries an incredible amount of emotional content and weight ... considering it's sung in Gaelic, and hence unintelligible to me. Even after many years, every time I listen I get goose-bumps and moved to tears. I'm not alone in that, either, as the first time I played it for my wife (saying "you have to hear this"), she was crying within 15 seconds. It is difficult to imagine the level of artistry that some folks possess ...

Each song on the CD is a gem, and as others have related, the songs span a considerable range of genres and topics. Whether it's the noble-but-betrayed 'Hugh the Graeme', the winsome 'Summer Before The War', or the end-of-the-trail heartbreak of 'Where Shall I Go (A Cowboy's Hard Times)', they're all little masterpieces.

If you're a fan of Celtic music, folk music, old fashioned western music, or the territories between, snag a copy of this CD: you'll enjoy every minute.

It's a mystery to me why Connie Dover is not yet more widely known. Ms. Dover has two remarkable gifts which are amply displayed on this album: she knows how to pick great, overlooked songs, and she has the vocal and emotional range to make every moment sound spontaneous and inevitable. If this sounds too lofty, give this album a listen. Whether singing celtic tracks, early American songs (like the heartbreakingly spare "Where Shall I Go?") or gems like the achingly beautiful "Summer Before the War", Ms. Dover invests each note and word with honest, immediate, passionate meaning. She also surrounds herself with impeccable musicians and fresh, vital arrangements. My goal in buying music is to find CDs I will listen to over and over. This album passed that test a long time ago and still makes regular visits to my CD player. Discover her for yourself, before the rest of the world does.

I first heard of Connie Dover when I purchased the CD compilation, "Celtic Voices." I immediately loved her rendition of "Siul a Ruin." I decided to purchase "The Wishing Well," and I was not disappointed! Connie's voice is amazing and sweet all at once. My favorites on this CD are "Laddie, Lie Near Me," "Hugh the Graeme," "Siul a Ruin," and "Willie of Winsbury." I think the two country-esque songs, "Where Shall I Go?" and "The Colorado Trail," seem a little out of place among the others, but it won't be long until you find yourself liking them too. I highly recommend this CD for anyone who enjoys listening to beautiful soprano voices and ballads that weave heart-touching tales of ages past.
